¿Spanish Tortilla en Santa Monica?

techbod | Jun 22, 2008 09:32 AM

I just remembered that while riding my bike through Santa Monica a couple of weekends ago, I spotted a soon-to-be-opened storefront dedicated to one of Europe's most delicious snacks - the Spanish Tortilla. It was located within a block of Ocean Ave., on the north side of Broadway, Colorado, or one of the other E/W streets in the area.

I fondly remember a deli in Barcelona's Plaza del Sol, downstairs from the grimiest excuse for a youth hostel in which I ever had the misfortune to rest my head, where they sliced a wedge of tortilla, transected it to make to skinny triangles which formed a near rectangle when nestled together on a long roll, and dressed the whole thing by SQUEEZING a tortilla all over it before closing up the sandwich and handing it off in a square of brown paper.

Has anyone seen, tried, reported on this new spot in Santa Monica? I wish I could remember the name, but I cannot. It was something cutesy VooZoo? TuTuTu? I think the sign was orange and green.
